Leah Vukmir has gotten herself in another mess of her own making. The career politician who desperately wants to go to Washington …“Career politician”? That would be Tammy Baldwin, would it not? As for Leah Vukmir, she worked more than 20 years as a certified pediatric nurse practitioner, receiving her nursing degree from Marquette University in 1980 and her master’s degree in nursing from UW Madison in 1983. She was only elected to the legislature in 2002, at age 44. O.K., I read the rest of “Vukmir should stop lying about Baldwin’s handling of Kavanaugh’s pick” in, where else, The Capital Times. The lengthy jeremiad never gets around to identifying the supposed lie but we extrapolate that Vukmir charges Baldwin with a knee-jerk rejection. The Capital Times tip toes around that inconvenient truth, disclaiming that “Baldwin examined Kavanaugh’s record and quickly determined she could not support his nomination.” Quickly, indeed! Politifact notes that Baldwin came out against both Kavanaugh and Gorsuch before meeting with them. Three days after Kavanaugh’s nomination was announced, in fact. But she did meet with Obama nominee Merrick Garland. Nonetheless, The Capital Times prostitutes itself saying “Baldwin’s approach to the Kavanugh nomination has been serious and thoughtful.” If you say so.

Investigate the Obama regime
There is no doubt that the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign. As Barr made clear, the real question is: What predicated the spying? Was there a valid reason for it, strong enough to overcome our norm against political spying? Or was it done rashly? Was a politically motivated decision made to use highly intrusive investigative tactics when a more measured response would have sufficed, such as a “defensive briefing” that would have warned the Trump campaign of possible Russian infiltration? — Andrew McCarthy in the New York Post.
What we’re not reading: “Anderson Cooper says Trump might go bonkers.” Where else but CNN!

14-year-old steals car at Memorial h.s.
Friday, March 29 —
A 14-year-old boy was arrested Friday night after he allegedly jumped into a car that was left running in the Madison Memorial High School parking lot, with the boy crashing the car and running to a nearby residence where he was arrested.
The incident happened at about 7:45 p.m. at the high school at 201 S. Gammon Road, Madison police said.
The suspect crashed the car in the parking lot, and fled on foot to a residence in the 7000 block of Tree Lane (of all places).
